Tuesday, Feb. 25's Lowdown

Sadly for Humboldt, today is just another Tuesday when we have no world-renowned Moroccan-Yemeni jazz bassist-led quintets playing in our fair county. So boring 'round these parts.

Oh, wait. There is one. Tonight in HSU's Fulkerson Recital Hall, the hardworking folks of the Redwood Jazz Alliance present the Omer Avital Quintet who somehow manage to namedrop a dozen-or-so more genres of music into their lengthy bio than we've ever considered existing. A sample:

"Raised in a Moroccan-Yemeni family in Tel Aviv, Avital was surrounded by a diverse musical landscape: Israeli folk songs (Arabic melodies mixed with European harmonies), Yemenite Jewish liturgical music, Ashkenazi and Sephardic prayer melodies, Arabic and Mediterranean popular tunes, European art music, and American jazz and blues."

Avital's ears must be full now. Allow his group's influences and virtuosity to slap you in the face via the YouTube clip below and/or peruse the rest of your Tuesday night options in your handy Lowdown below.
